Summer’s almost here, and on our casual days we’ll be trading in pants and slacks (slacks, heh, love that word) for cute shorts and pretty skirts. Have you considered taking that extra step and slapping a faux glow on those lovely stems of yours? You definitely should! Not only will you look healthier and more fit (bonus!) with a faux glow, a little color will help to hide imperfections like spider and varicose veins. Trust me, I know--because I’m an avid user of the stuff.
Self Tanning 101: How to Self Tan Like A Bronze Goddess
Feel a bit intimidated by the idea of self tanning? Don’t be. Formulas have improved tremendously over the years (QT, anyone?) and are easier to use than ever. Even the scent of the formulas have changed for the better! Here are a few easy-peasy steps to take to help get your glow on.
Tip/Trick: Your tan too deep? Apply baby oil for ten minutes, then exfoliate with a damp wash cloth before rinsing off. It should help to fade the color.
Make sure to color just what you want to cover, there's no need to go wongo with the product. For example, nobody sees my belly, back or butt like, ever, so I don’t bother self-tanning those areas. I generally stick to my legs, arms, shoulders, chest and face.
Tip/Trick: No facial tanner? Here’s what I do: Dilute your body formula with facial moisturizer and apply!
